I was very fortunate to be asked to introduce the Rt. Hon. Sir Iain Duncan Smith at a dinner where he set out why freedom requires the UK and her allies to stand up to totalitarian states.
His remarks were very thought provoking in this time of conflict in Ukraine and Gaza, and with tensions in many other places like the pacific.
The Q&A showed how much people care about our standing in the world and the issues that impact us all.
We also had the pleasure of remarks from Alex Burghart MP, the Parliamentary Secretary covering:
- Public sector AI efficiency
- Legislation, including secondary legislation
- COVID-19 inquiry and Grenfell Tower inquiry - sponsorship function
A great evening of insights, and a strength of the British system of parliament that sees MPs engaging week in and out with people across the country like this.
